Wow, so freakin' excited everybody!! Got news yesterday that I'll be headed down to South Walton, Florida from January 13th-15th to perform at the amazing 30A Songwriters Festival. I played the 2011 festival and it was one of the highlights of my whole year.. It's one of the most pristine, white-sand beach areas I've ever seen.. great food, great people and great venues.. and the artist line-up for 30A is just INSANE.. Check out their site and consider a little trip down to Seaside, Florida in January. I think you'll fall in love with the area if you haven't been before:
Here's a little blurb about the festival:
With styles ranging from folk, country, rock and alternative, the 2012 line-up features nationally-acclaimed songwriters and musicians including The Bangles, Rodney Crowell, Shawn Mullins, Matthew Sweet, Indigo Girls and Fastball as well as David Wilcox, Steve Forbert, Mary Gauthier, Sam Bush, Randall Bramblett, Tommy Talton, Jeffrey Steele, Chely Wright, Chuck Cannon, Tim Nichols, Corey Smith, David Olney, Davin McCoy, Lori McKenna, Tommy Womack, Kevn Kinney, The Shadowboxers, Larkin Poe, Emily Lynch, Joseph Arthur, Matthew Mayfield, Rachel Platten, Callaghan, David Berkeley, Garrison Starr, Jeff Black, Joe Leathers, Ben Glover, Billy Montana, Chas Sanford, Brian White, Karyn Williams, Greg Barnhill, Forrest Williams Band, Kyle Jacobs, Kelsey Anna, Reed Waddle, Meg Huthchinson, Bridgette Demeyer, Daphne Willis, Shannon Whitworth, Suzi Ragsdale, Georgia, Ashleigh Flynn, Sterling Fletcher, Mike Whitty and Joanna Cotten. Stay tuned for the announcement of over 75 more artists in the coming weeks!
I'm currently caught in some nasty Northeast Halloween snow.. I've decided to let this snow pass and leave first thing in the morning for Nashville, TN. Recording sessions for my new record begin on Monday!! Incredible.. I'm such a fan of Neilson Hubbard's work (neilsonhubbard.com) and I know I'm in such great hands. It will be a fairly quick recording process. We'll have the final mastered cd in our hands by Christmas.
If you hadn't heard, this new record was ENTIRELY fan-funded through Pledge Music. I'm so blown away by my fans and their support!! It's not too late to pre-order the new record and get access to all of the behind the scenes goodness.. Pledgers are given access to private updates (free downloads, exclusive video, pics etc) and will be able to download the new record MONTHS before the general public. So it's a great deal for you and a great way to help me pay for expensive duplication, promotion and publicity campaigns.

BIG love to all.. so excited to have you with me for this ride.. If you ever want to host a house concert or just want to say hello, drop me a line here: firstname.lastname@example.org
